It has been months ago now I heard in the Spirit “litmus test” more than once. I didn’t understand it at first but soon came to realize the Lord was sending me on assignment and teaching me even through my own suffering, allowing me to see the condition of the Body as a whole. Over a period of about four months through various trials, circumstances, encounters, and mostly through the way others responded to me He was showing me “where the Body was at” so to speak through the litmus tests.
The Lord has been teaching me shepherding through Shepherding me, because a shepherd knows their flock. Our great Shepherd leads with both rod and staff, this is a pivotal time in history and the Body needs both love and correction. Through humbling me in my own life, He showed more than I ever wanted to know – while crushed speechless so I couldn’t boast in what He was sharing with me. This is just a very small impression of the overall dynamic that was laying on me heavy last night – which I hope is perceived through the contrition of my heart, not in judgment or anger.
Last night I went to sleep feeling the grief of the Lord, particularly over how Christian’s within the Church body treat one another. The below scripture came to mind as I said aloud we are hurting His heart. I awoke early to hear the Lord speak in my spirit for a long while regarding.
“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” Matthew 25:40 NKJV
When did I think I was better than you Lord?
When did I slander your name Lord?
When did I exalt myself over You, Lord?
When was I excluding You from “my group”, Lord?
When did I cut in front of You, Lord?
When did I tell lies and spread rumors about You, Lord?
When did I look down on You, Lord?
When did I compete with you Lord?
When did I judge you, Lord?
When did I accuse you, Lord?
When did I try and “block” You, Lord?
When did I act like I was more gifted than You, Lord?
When did I say I deserved Your seat, Lord?
When did I say I owned a position in Your house, Lord?
When did I pretend to serve You in humility, Lord?
When did I pretend to love You, Lord?
“And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me. [Prov. 19:17.]” Matthew 25:40 AMPC
The least of men according to our own estimations….
Why are the sheep acting like goats? One reason is the Church has exchanged discipline for the discipleship of the spirit of the world, and Babylon still longs for her.
The Church is lagging behind in immaturity living beneath her calling, the Lord is patient but He is also Holy, and His heart is grieved. There is much work to be done, and it’s time to grow and mature. How do we expect to steward mass harvest when we are still cutting down our own, fighting for position or seeking our own glory … all in His Name? Oh how this burdens His heart!
Sheep, goats, wheat, tares; what’s the difference you ask? Fruit. We are judged by God and separated by fruit.
Are we houses of healing or houses of hurt? No longer can the two streams coincide together. If we hurt people in thought, judgments, words, actions – we are hurting the Lord Jesus in thoughts, we are judging Him, we condemn ourselves by condemning others with our mouths, and the action is just a mere reality of wickedness in our hearts – the very place we boast He has a home.
Litmus test is defined by Webster’s dictionary, “something (such as an opinion about a political or moral issue) that is used to make a judgment about whether someone or something is acceptable”. The Lord loves us more than we could ever imagine and equally He is just and righteous deciding what He is for and what He is against. It is maturity to embrace, welcome and even ask for pruning. You are loved by God when you are disciplined by Him. Get in the fire before it consumes you. Yield and prefer the Holy Flame! Judge yourself so you will not be judged.
Father, forgive us. Holy Spirit convict us. Jesus change us.
“Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6 AMPC
Spirit move upon us, burn away the chaff, and burn our hearts with holy devotion unto Your Name! Make us a people who truly fear Your Name and keep Your commandments. If we love you, we will obey. Your sheep hear Your Voice and the voices of strangers they do not follow. Guardian of our soul keep us for you!
September is the 9th month on our Gregorian calendar, and represents a number of birthing! On the Hebrew calendar Rosh Hashanah is the celebration of the Jewish new year, and begins September 25 – 27th. The first day of autumn is September 22 and also symbolic of a time of change and harvest.
The New Monarchy Creation
Just yesterday on August 31, I was spending time in prayer when I saw a vision of a monarch butterfly, and then two other monarchs around it. Shortly after I saw a picture of luminous nuggets of gold. I had been sensing that the intense testing I had been going through was coming to an end, and the Lord highlighted to me that these appeared on the last day of the month of August – the eighth month which represents new beginnings and restoration. I finally had the confirming sign that the last “trimester” was complete, even through the number of butterflies in the vision. For me, it was three months to the day of the most heated fires and fiercest testing I have encountered this far in my life. The number three represents the Spirit, and I have remained confident it was the Lord’s will to test me. Butterflies, because of their complete metamorphosis are often associated with new beginnings and rebirth. We know that gold is refined in fire or extreme heat, and the nuggets represent the depths. From the deep and hidden places is now emerging the monarch creation.
The word monarch is defined as
•One who reigns over a state or territory, usually for life and by hereditary right, especially.
•A sole and absolute ruler.
•A sovereign, such as a king or empress, often with constitutionally limited authority.
•One that commands or rules.
•One that surpasses others in power or preeminence.
•A monarch butterfly.
•The chief of a monarchy; a supreme governor for life, entitled variously emperor (or empress), king (or queen), czar (or czarina), sultan, shah, etc.; primarily, a sole or autocratic ruler of a state, but in modern times generally a hereditary sovereign with more or less limited powers.
A gold nugget is a naturally occurring piece of native gold. “Gold nuggets originate from gold-bearing lodes. These derive from denser underground locations of the Earth, emerging on the surface through volcanic activity. Nuggets are pieces of naturally-occurring gold, detached from the lode, and then transported by natural forces in nearby sites like rivers.”
““Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness (right standing with God), Who seek and inquire of the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut And to the excavation of the quarry from which you were dug. Look to Abraham your father And to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain; For I called him when he was but one, Then I blessed him and made him many.” For the Lord will comfort Zion [in her captivity]; He will comfort all her ruins. And He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and the voice of a melody. “Listen carefully to Me [says the Lord], O My people, And hear Me, O My nation; For a [divine] law will go forth from Me, And I will quickly establish My justice as a light to the peoples. My righteousness (justice) is near, My salvation has gone forth, And My arms will judge the peoples; The islands and coastlands will wait for Me, And they will wait with hope and confident expectation for My arm. Isaiah 51:1-5 AMP
Early in the morning of August 9th, I had a dream and in the later part a woman was speaking to me as she was riding in the front passenger side of a vehicle, she was nearly going to give birth any moment. In fact, she appeared to be overdue. I was riding in the back though leaning into the front to listen, and at times was viewing the scene from third person. At one point, she was using the opened glove box as a tray, and eating sliced meat. The meaning of the pregnant woman’s name means “harvester” and “late summer”. We were in an urban area driving down a narrow backstreet with colorful artistic painting and graffiti on the city walls. The word urban is Latin urbanus meaning, “of or pertaining to a city or city life; in Rome,” also “in city fashion, polished, refined, cultivated, courteous” ; urbis “city, walled town”.
As I have been praying for the restoration of Eden, I believe the redeemed, tested, and mature sons and daughters are being “reborn” to take dominion for and with our Heavenly Father; that we may establish His Kingdom as our rightful inheritance for such a time as this. This is a pivotal season of change and establishing, a time to walk into the fullness of what we were born to do – with humility, gratitude, and maturity. A time to redeem the land; polish, refine, and cultivate in courtesy to its Creator and with integrity to the original design. A time to build and re-build from the ancient path, fulfill the dream and blueprint of His heart, repair the walls that are continually before Him, make straight the highway and keep in sight the city of our God.
We Are Moving From Pressure To Promise
The harvest has been long overdue, and speaks of many different types of crops – from salvation of the eternal spirit to the secret petitions of the heart, the Lord is restoring life and waking all of our parts. The Father will fulfill His promises while the Son kisses your heart, delivered by the Holy Spirit and marked by a brand new start. From pressure to promise, the renaissance is beginning, watch now for the birthing and re-birthing is here. Steward well the authority given, for this shall be known as a season of “on earth as it is in heaven”. Lean in and incline your ear, do you not hear the sound of creation groaning?
“For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation, all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God’s children. To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth. And it’s not just creation. We who have already experienced the firstfruits of the Spirit also inwardly groan as we passionately long to experience our full status as God’s sons and daughters—including our physical bodies being transformed.” Romans 8:20-23 TPT
“Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him].” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 AMPC
We are coming into a time when the truth will be seen “rightly” and it will be as the saying goes, “truth is stranger than fiction”.
The deceptive layer blinding the eyes and hearts of many is the real fiction, and while we have been comfortable to rebuke truth and hold fiction in its place – there will soon be no denying the false realities we have eagerly embraced for generations.
The arrogance of man will be humbled. The lofty thoughts will be made to bow low. The winds will sift throughout all the earth, lifting up and tearing down. Many will say, “Is this evil, or is this good?” And the Lord says yes it is both.
Repent (change your thinking) Repent (change your mind) – the glory clouds are coming to weigh the hearts and the mind. And as Elijah left this earth so will his spirit return, so look for the winds and the hurricanes as they will be a sign.
Return to me, return to me, hearts turn to the Father. Return to me, return to me and drink this last cup of water.
““Go up through the rows of Jerusalem’s vineyards and destroy [them], But do not completely destroy everything. Strip away her branches and the tendrils [of her vines], For they are not the Lord’s. For the house of Israel and the house of Judah Have dealt very treacherously (faithlessly) with Me,” declares the Lord. They have lied about and denied the Lord By saying, “It is not He [who speaks through His prophets]; Misfortune and evil shall not come on us, Nor will we see war or famine. The prophets are like the wind [their prophecy will not come to pass], And the word [of God] is not in them. In this manner it will be done to them [as they prophesied, not to us].” Therefore, thus says the Lord God of hosts, “Because you [people] have spoken this word, Behold, I am making My words a fire in your mouth [Jeremiah] And this people wood, and My words will consume them. Behold, I am bringing a nation against you from far away, O house of Israel,” says the Lord. “It is a mighty and enduring nation, It is an ancient nation, A nation whose language you do not know, Whose words you do not comprehend. Their quiver is [filled with the dead] like an open grave; They are all mighty men [heroes of their nation]. They will consume your harvest and [eat up] your bread; They will consume your sons and your daughters; They will consume your flocks and your herds; They will consume your vines and your fig trees. With the sword they will break down and demolish your fortified cities in which you trust. “But even in those days,” says the Lord, “I will not totally destroy you. It will come about when your people say, ‘Why has the Lord our God done all these things to us?’ then you shall answer them, ‘As you have abandoned (rejected) Me,’ [says the Lord,] ‘and have served strange and foreign gods in your land, so you will serve strangers in a land that is not yours.’” Jeremiah 5:10-19 AMP
““Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance], so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse [of complete destruction].”” Malachi 4:5-6 AMP
Earlier this month on Sunday, July 10, my friend picked me up for church which gave me the ability to finish getting ready in the car, and by getting ready I mean applying my makeup as it’s almost always the last step for me and on-the-go. This day I couldn’t find my concealer, it should have been in either my makeup bag or purse, though after searching with no avail it appeared to be misplaced or lost. For those of you who are not familiar with concealer and what it is used for, it is a light color cosmetic that is applied to the face that typically blends in with the skin to “conceal”. My concealer is specifically used to brighten the under the eye area though it can be used for blemishes, red areas, or to blur imperfections, etc. For me, if I choose to wear makeup it is a step in my routine that I don’t like to leave out as it gives a bright and even-tone look, however there was no substitute so I shrugged it off and went about my day.
After service, when I arrived back to the place where I am staying, I was walking up the stairs when the Holy Spirit said, “No Concealer”. Then I heard the scripture verse from Luke 12, “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.” Luke 12:2 NIV. In greater context, for over a year the Lord has been speaking to me about judgment, kings, ruling, and war, however I have seldom released those messages and have been intentionally “flying low”. Two months ago the Lord told me I needed to start saying the harder things He shares with me as it aligns with my purpose and call.
I asked the Lord why He didn’t just tell me the scripture as opposed to having me experience the message of literally ‘going without concealer’ and He said, “Because it’s right under the eye”. It is at the door – exposure, war, judgment, separation. In other words, we are about to have an encounter with this knowledge. The experience with the concealer came after several weeks of new warning words, as well as dreams and visions of the needed cleansing and separation that is coming to the Church. There was a two-fold message in the concealer – first I could no longer keep hidden the secrets He has shared with me when given permission to release and secondly whatever has been hiding in darkness will be made known and come to light. I was curious to know if I actually lost the concealer, and I did find it later on a small side table that I didn’t recall placing it on. I’ve gotten used to the prophetic acts that I often will experience on behalf of the Church Body, and this was confirmation that this was of importance to the Lord.
More revelation continued to flow as I thought about specific areas I apply the concealer; in addition to my eyes I also use it around the crease of my nose, and above my top lip known as “cupid’s bow” as it gives the effect of opening up the lips. As I meditated upon what the Lord already said to me I realized it didn’t end there – He wants us to fully sense what is happening in the Body without filter (nose). He wants to reveal the false loyalty, and religious spirit (lips). Our eyes cannot see on our own body these pointed out areas; we cannot see the creases or dark circles under our eye, we cannot see the folds beside our nose, and we cannot see our lips. The Lord is wanting us to see what is in “the fold” and “under the surface” so to speak in His Body. Luke 12:1 is the opening scripture that precedes Nothing Concealed and gives warning of the leaven of the Pharisees. “In the meanwhile, when so many thousands of the people had gathered that they were trampling on one another, Jesus commenced by saying primarily to His disciples, Be on your guard against the leaven (ferment) of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy [producing unrest and violent agitation].” As I was writing this out I felt the Holy Spirit prompt me to look up the word leaven in the Greek. Leaven is defined in HELPS Word-studies (figuratively) as the spreading influence of what is typically concealed, generally a symbol of the spreading nature of evil. Then Jesus says, “Nothing is [so closely] covered up that it will not be revealed, or hidden that it will not be known. Whatever you have spoken in the darkness shall be heard and listened to in the light, and what you have whispered in [people’s] ears and behind closed doors will be proclaimed upon the housetops.” Luke 12:2-3 AMPC
Prior to the concealer experience on Wednesday, July 6, I had another alarming dream of an unclean spirit trying to reproduce itself and directionally drive the body of Christ through seduction. Visually, a very tall man was sitting Indian style with his posture straight, his wife also very tall was also sitting Indian style to the left of him. This woman’s limbs coiled around the husband in an unnatural humanly possible way so that she was partly intertwined with him, though in the rite of unity. The woman’s name in the dream means “pure” and “clear”, though is also from the Greek god of magic, meaning “torture”. The man’s name symbolizes a type of Christ and means “to save”, “God is deliverance”. The man’s head seemed to be enlarged in the dream. Ultimately, the man representing the head of the Church was influenced by sensuality unaware and was subdued by a false peace, yielding his power to the desire and mind of the woman. The sensual spirit was masked under leadership, unity, purity and peace, and nearly impossible to discern based on appearances and logic. When I was praying about the dream later in the morning that day, the Lord gave me a vision of a large white-head on the face that was ready to “pop”. It was quite deceptive because it was not red and irritated on the surface, though hiding underneath was the root of the acne where the build up of old oils and infection was trapped within the clogged pore. When I saw the vision it was magnified very large, so that the white-head was very enlarged, like a mountain slope. The internal build up was ‘piling high’ and ready to burst forth. The Lord was also pointing out that it was white which normally means purity however He was saying the mountain was disguised as ‘being pure’. “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.” Psalms 24:3-4 NKJV. This “popping” of the underlying infection will expose idolatry and deceit within with body.
This new wave of cleansing is so close that it is very difficult to see. This is why the five-fold leadership must pay attention with the eyes of their spirit. You will miss it if you only see what you see within your own ability, we must be willing to humble ourselves and listen to the Spirit and whom He may be speaking through to expose the deeper need of cleansing. Our highest spiritual goal is to be transformed into the image of Jesus, and as we prepare for His return we purify ourselves to look like Him – the pure, spotless, unblemished Lamb of God. The unclean spirit is among the leadership and/or their influencers at different levels through out the global body. Often times when we are closer to the situation or persons either through position or familiarity, it can make the coming exposure, needed cleansing and separation hard to detect. Seducing spirits cause religion to reproduce, as they are entangled and have become one. The process of becoming untwined and unyoked will more than likely be very painful though necessary. This is a time when the Lord wants us to see the imperfections, darkness, and blemishes – not to be critical and judgmental (even though His judgment is coming) though rather as protection, an opportunity for repentance, and a severing for true sustainable healthy growth.
I asked the Lord why He spoke to me while going up the stairs coming back after church that Sunday. Why then? Why there? This is what He showed me, I am staying in a temporary and transitional place and the address numbers literally mean “complete new beginning”. I was just about to enter the door where those numbers are visibly located, and symbolically the new era of the Church and many in the global body have crossed over the Jordan though have not yet occupied their promised land. We have been traversing in the new land and have been given keys to doors however we have not completely taken residence in Canaan. We are not yet homeowners in the promised land. Some are in the process of building new homes, though the structures are not yet finished. Joshua’s conquest of Canaan was a seven year battle, made up of several other battles once they crossed the Jordan. Some of these battles were won by “suddenlies” by the Lord’s mighty power, but none were won without obedience to His instruction.
The Lord knows what we can handle and He sees the larger picture at hand. This is why cleansing and deliverance often happen in stages. “I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate [for lack of attention] and the wild beasts multiply against you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and are numerous enough to take possession of the land.” Exodus 23:29-30 AMPC. As the Bride matures and completely separates from Egypt through sanctification, so shall she inherit her promises and land [short exhortation on that here https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2021/06/25/rolling-away-egypt/ ].
This is the one of the most critical junctures of history, especially for the Church. The Lord is sovereign and yet our obedience and diligence toward His instructions, voice and ways has never been more important to inherit our complete new beginning. This is about the Lamb receiving His reward, His Bride, and when allow the unclean spirit a home in the new building / era we are not cleaning and purifying the Bride we are defiling her! For the union of the Son and His Bride, God’s love not only confronts, it cuts. When Jesus was on earth He said, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” Matthew 10:34 NKJV. And in the Passion Translation, “Perhaps you think I’ve come to spread peace and calm over the earth—but my coming will bring conflict and division, not peace.” Matthew 10:34 TPT. In the footnotes of The Passion Translation it is written that the Aramaic word harba can mean either “sword” or “war” and in the Greek either term signifies division.
The impending war and judgment we are facing will surface in our natural earth realm, however there is no doubt the war is first waged within the mind of man. Similarly the great judgement is a divide of the mind; a deciding for or against the beliefs that have taken root in the heart of man. “For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account.” Hebrews 4:12-13 AMP.
It was the Pharisees that made for themselves fail-able kingdoms on earth that decay, their self importance building towers high,“Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), as it is written [in Scripture], ‘These people honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. They worship Me in vain [their worship is meaningless and worthless, a pretense], Teaching the precepts of men as doctrines [giving their traditions equal weight with the Scriptures].’” Mark 7:6-7 AMP. This religious spirit would be responsible for our slain Bridegroom King, it lay with the unclean spirit that would seduce and lead astray the loyalty of hearts, blinding men from the hope of an eternity with our risen Lord. Holy Spirit lead us to the measuring rod, may we build for You with purity of mind, heart, action and speech; help us to love the discipline of the Father as we build an unshakable Kingdom for Your throne, cleanse and sanctify us that we may share in the beauty of Your holiness. Make us holy because you are Holy, we want to look like you and behold Your form.
“For there is nothing hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come out into the open. So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”” Luke 8:17-18 AMP
For some of the other prophetic words that I have already published on war, judgement and exposure visit these links:
Earlier today I was thinking about the unity I have with someone in the Spirit and the tangible presence of the Lord came on me so intensely in that same moment. It was a sense of complete oneness with another and the Lord though I was sitting alone.
True union is not two-fold but rather three-fold. Our highest example is the Triune Godhead – Three persons though One. Three is also symbolic of the Spirit, and it is in the Spirit that we can really only experience true Oneness with the Lord or another person. Biblically, when two become one flesh in marriage, it is under the covenant of God, meaning it is by the Spirit they become one flesh. “A threefold cord is not quickly broken” Ecclesiastes 4:12. We look most like God when we are in unity, another reason the enemy comes to counter unity so fiercely not only in marriage but on any front is because he desires to look like God. Being that we are the image bearers of God Himself who the enemy now hates, he retaliates and disrupts to distract to distort to deceive.
Disunity begins as a disruption. The Lord gave me a picture to explain; if we are made of mostly water, think about when water is disrupted. Waves, storms, even small stones thrown in a river or pond can create a ripple. Now think of beholding your image in that body of water, now depending on the conditions when you see yourself when the waters are disrupted there can be multiple images, skewed images, distorted images, or worse yet you may not be able to see yourself at all. When the water is at peace, or when it is most still, that is when a clear image will be seen. “Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 AMPC. Do you see? In the stillness of recognizing His image within us we understand that He is God. “Becoming” is the art of creation and we are formed and transformed for Him. “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 KJV. We were always meant to see Him!
Side note – the reason we have and need deliverance ministry is because we have unified with other spirits, knowingly and unknowingly.
Oneness through remaining in Him is how we can truly be priests; our first ministry is unto the Lord, and as we abide in Him we are able to step into unity with one another. “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6 NKJV
Obtaining oil is a necessary part of our high calling, and though costly, there is an even greater cost when found without it. As written of in the parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25, it is clear that eternity hinges on our own personal oil.
“How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, which flows down upon the hills of Zion. Indeed, that is where Yahweh has decreed his blessings will be found, the promise of life forevermore!” Psalms 133:1-3 TPT.
Prophetically look at the numbers of this Psalm, Chapter 133 / 1+3+3 = 7 meaning complete. 1 3+3 = 6 meaning one man, two three’s but one. There are three verses that make up the entire chapter, meaning Trinity, the Spirit, unity and equal a total of three 3’s chapter and verse. 3×3 = 9 and the number nine is symbolic of birthing. I believe we even see the design of God in these numbers that read one complete re-birthing of man is in the unity of the Spirit. It is believed Jesus was 33 years old when He was crucified, the one man we need to behold. Our highest place of unity is remaining in Him, here we acquire the oil of intimacy. “My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into mine!” Galatians 2:20 TPT
The Hebrew word oil in Psalm 133:2 means anointing, to shine, fruitful, ointment. I love how the Word is interwoven and testifies of itself, displaying the essence of fragrant unity. “Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.” John 15:4 AMPC
I have had a recurring vision over the last few weeks. In the vision I see myself leaning back into the chest of Jesus though I am facing forward and He is behind me. As I lean back into Him, I “disappear” and am completely in Him. Hidden in Christ. Come Holy Spirit, make us one with the Son! This is the circle of everlasting life, union with You! “For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3 AMPC
Arise shining and burning one’s, arise!
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1 ESV
A New Word Of Encouragement To The Global Church Before Pentecost
Amy Sutherland 4.22.22
Clear vision and knowing your assignment make all the difference when given a weighty commission, yet what is essential for completion especially for longer-term and far-reaching assignments is a passionate heart. It is the fire surrounded by purpose that causes one to blaze ahead to the finish line. In the life of every believer is the core mission statement named The Great Commission, and we were given the Holy Spirit to help us fulfill it. In the Gospel of Matthew the final words recorded by Jesus are the first introduction to this commission;“Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed and made appointment with them. And when they saw Him, they fell down and worshiped Him; but some doubted. Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).” Matthew 28:16-20. In the Gospel of Mark we have a even more detailed account of the commission, “Later, Jesus appeared to the eleven [disciples] themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He called them to account for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen [from death]. And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed [in Me] and has been baptized will be saved [from the penalty of God’s wrath and judgment]; but he who has not believed will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will get well.” So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord was working with them and confirming the word by the signs that followed.]” Mark 16:14-20.
I believe if we are honest, many Christians leave the vision of The Great Commission up to Evangelists, their Pastors, other five-fold or even other leaders. They may wonder how can my life reach the world? Yet, truthfully, the vision to fulfill this command can seem overwhelming to anyone regardless of title. These leaders may be wondering the same, how do I lead others in reaching the world? In 2009 and 2010 I had the opportunity to spend six months in Africa, the first three months I was attending Iris Harvest School of Missions in Mozambique, serving with Heidi Baker’s ministry. I had so much anticipation in going to the school, I desired to go grow deeper in my relationship with the Lord, though also knowing the ministry operated in miracles, signs and wonders I could not help but dream about what I would experience! I did see healing, I did see miracles, but most experiences did not happen as I imagined – not bad, just different. The Lord spoke to me very clearly while I was there and one word that has marked me since was, “Amy, the greatest miracle is the miracle of the transformed heart”. Above Kingdom affairs and the supernatural life, He was setting things in order that are connected to the center of my calling. And really, this is for every believer, as the first commandment gives mention of this divine order, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being].” Deuteronomy 6:5. We need wholeness of heart to love well; to love God, then ourselves, our family, and our neighbors. Physical healing is beautiful, biblical and one hundred percent what the Lord longs to give us, but it does not usurp the healing of the heart. What good is a physical healing if the heart from which we live is unwhole? “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23. One of Mama Heidi’s main messages was “stopping for the one”; the simplicity of the Gospel is loving the one in front of you. I loved that the ministry was so free that it encouraged us to be missionaries wherever the Holy Spirit was leading us; from the homemaker to the business CEO and all in between we are the missionary in the field wherever the Lord has called us – inside the walls of the Church or outside, whether on foreign or domestic soil. While I had already held fast to this truth in my heart, it was liberating to be part of a ministry that empowered the Body in this way.
Before Jesus commissioned the disciples, He addressed their vision which was also connected to their hearts. Matthew pens some of the disciples doubted it was Jesus they were seeing, while Mark pens the disciples would give account (were rebuked) for their unbelief and hardness of heart because they did not believe those who had seen Jesus after He had risen from death. Unbelief is rooted in mistrust and is an issue of the heart, the eyes were the last senses to follow what their hearts were speaking. “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out fo the evil of his heart produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45. Before the disciples could be used as the first mouthpieces for the foundational building of His Church and the fulfilling of the commission, Jesus had to remind them who they were. These disciples knew the Scriptures, they had been with the Word Himself! Hundreds of years prior Wisdom wrote, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7, and so He dealt with the mind that was causing the seed of doubt. In Greek the word for disciple is mathētḗs, a learner, disciple, pupil and comes from math – “the mental effort to think something through”. HELPS word study defines mathēteúō, “disciple” – to disciple, i.e. helping someone to progressively learn the Word of God to become a matured, growing disciple (literally, “a learner,” a true Christ-follower); to train (develop) in the truths of Scripture and the lifestyle required, i.e. helping a believer learn to be a disciple of Christ in belief and practice.” Before the disciples could be commissioned into practice, they had to believe!
The Great Commission was given after the crucifixion and Jesus understood the disciples were grieving, brokenhearted, and were trying to make sense of the living history they had just been a part of. They had no grid except that Jesus had told them these things would transpire, they were literally experiencing earth shaking events that had never happened before (or since). How beautiful we see the compassion, truth, and reassurance of the Lord at work even in the questioning. Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene after she returned to the tomb a second time and in her weeping, in her grief He came and said, “Woman, why are you crying? For whom are you looking?” and at the sound of her name “Mary!”, she turned and said, “Rabboni!” (John 20:13-16). Mary heard a name to Name recognition in her Beloved’s Voice, formed from her pure and intimate devotion. “The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27. Because Jesus defeated death and fulfilled the prophecy, He could now be seen as her Creator, “But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine!” Isaiah 43:1.
As only Jesus can do, He watches over His Word to perform it, being the very fulfillment of the Spirit of Prophecy, He testifies of Himself again on the road to Emmaus on the same day of the resurrection in an appearance to two of His disciples. Concealing His identity, He first caused them to become still to acknowledge the condition of their hearts. “And then, that very day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. While they were talking and discussing it, Jesus Himself came up and began walking with them. But their eyes were [miraculously] prevented from recognizing Him. Then Jesus asked them, “What are you discussing with one another as you walk along?” And they stood still, looking brokenhearted.” Luke 24:13-17. I love the demonstration of Scripture found in this passage that Jesus was revealing through His presence; “He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].” Psalms 147:3,“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18, ““Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.”” Psalms 46:10.
As the Lord continued to walk and talk with them, still concealed, He did for them what they could not do for themselves; He opened their minds to understand and process what had just happened. “And [Jesus] said to them, O foolish ones [sluggish in mind, dull of perception] and slow of heart to believe (adhere to and trust in and rely on) everything that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary and essentially fitting that the Christ (the Messiah) should suffer all these things before entering into His glory (His majesty and splendor)? Then beginning with Moses and [throughout] all the Prophets, He went on explaining and interpreting to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning and referring to Himself.” Luke 24:25-27. The Lord Jesus in His patience and kindness came where they were lacking – in their minds. Again in the Greek, a disciple derives its meaning from math, “mental effort to think something through,” and the circumstances and the evidence weren’t adding up yet for the disciples so Jesus provided the answers and helped them “solve the equation”. What happens next causes my heart to collapse in longing every time I read the passage. “Then they approached the village where they were going, and He acted as if He were going farther. But they urged Him [not to go on], saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening, and the day has just about ended.” So He went inside to stay with them. And it happened that as He reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. Then their eyes were [suddenly] opened [by God] and they [clearly] recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight. They said to one another, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was talking with us on the road and opening the Scriptures to us?”” Luke 24:28-32. A burning heart is the answer to life’s equation. You cannot give to someone else that which you do not have. Knowing and loving God, and loving others is the commission. This love reaches beyond death, and its flames cannot be quenched. Passion for God is the fuel needed to finish our race, but there is one more step in solving the equation…
There are many more accounts of the visitations of the Resurrected Christ to His disciples that affirmed the reality of His glorified body and revitalized their hearts in belief (John 20:30,31). However, there was one last command that Jesus gave before the disciples were to be released into their missions; they were to wait for the baptism and empowerment of the Holy Spirit. “Until the day when He ascended, after He through the Holy Spirit had instructed and commanded the apostles (special messengers) whom He had chosen. To them also He showed Himself alive after His passion (His suffering in the garden and on the cross) by [a series of] many convincing demonstrations [unquestionable evidences and infallible proofs], appearing to them during forty days and talking [to them] about the things of the kingdom of God. And while being in their company and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised, Of which [He said] you have heard Me speak. [John 14:16, 26; 15:26.] For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with (placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:2-5
Once again in the Lord’s compassion and mercy He remembers the weakness of our frame and provides the fuel. We yield, we wait upon Him, and our strength is renewed. It is quite impossible to refuel a moving vehicle. The car must come to a complete stop with the engine shut off to safely refuel. As the disciples obeyed the instructions to wait in Jerusalem, 40 days later just as Jesus promised the Holy Spirit came. “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place, and suddenly a sound came from heaven like a rushing violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit]. And they were all filled [that is, diffused throughout their being] with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (different languages), as the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak out [clearly and appropriately].” Acts 2:1-4. The number forty represents testing, growth, and completion. Jesus left the wilderness after forty days of testing and was filled with power, at forty weeks a baby is ready to be born, and we are familiar with the Israelites wandering for forty years and the unbelief in the promise that kept them in the cycle. I believe forty is a number of choice; we can wander in disbelief or wonder in holy awe. Today I pray as you read this that the Lord would restore childlike faith in your hearts, I pray you would come out of agreement with unbelief and cease wandering and begin to wonder at the signs of the Lord once more. I release healing to bind up any broken-heartedness, and I declare you are released from your captivity. I pray your purpose would be clear, and vision would be restored. I pray you would be still and know that He is God, and in the stillness allow Him to complete the work He has begun in you. I pray for a fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit that would reignite first love. May your life be forever changed as you are renewed and refreshed to finish your race well. Gaze upon and behold the One in front of you, and cultivate devout affection for His Presence. We need the Holy Spirit to love Jesus, and it is He that enables to love the ones assigned around us and to us. Holy fire grip our hearts once more! Be blessed in your refueling and commissioning and may your burning heart set the world on fire!
“As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us. We look away from the natural realm and we focus our attention and expectation onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God! So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures.” Hebrews 12:1-3
“Fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire forevermore. This living, consuming flame will seal you as my prisoner of love. My passion is stronger than the chains of death and the grave, all consuming as the very flashes of fire from the burning heart of God. Place this fierce, unrelenting fire over your entire being. Rivers of pain and persecution will never extinguish this flame. Endless floods will be unable to quench this raging fire that burns within you. Everything will be consumed. It will stop at nothing as you yield everything to this furious fire until it won’t even seem to you like a sacrifice anymore.” Song of Songs 8:6-7
Arise and take your seat sons and daughters, the King of Kings has positioned you for such a time as this! This evening at sunset begins Purim, the Jewish holiday celebrating the new decree written of in the book of Esther, an edict allowing the freedom to defend one’s self and take the plunder of enemies. Purim in the old covenant is a time to recall the miraculous saving of the Jewish people, as Haman had an evil plot to annihilate the entire race, a plan that nearly was accomplished if it had not been for Queen Esther speaking boldly on behalf of her people. Consequently, Haman and his sons were hung on the very gallows he intended for the killing of the Jews. While we continue to remember history, the blessing of the new covenant is that the King of Kings has already delivered His sons and daughters and seated us with Him to continue to rule and decree for the salvation of the peoples. Much like Esther, He has raised us above the powers of the air and set us like stars in the sky to shine brightly in the dark of night (Ephesians 2:6, Timothy 2:12, Colossians 3:1-3, Luke 10:19).
The new decree in the book of Esther: “By these letters the king permitted the Jews who were in every city to gather together and protect their lives—to destroy, kill, and annihilate all the forces of any people or province that would assault them, both little children and women, and to plunder their possessions, on one day in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar.” Esther 8:11-12 NKJV
“Then Queen Esther, the daughter of Abihail, with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full power and authority to confirm this second letter about Purim (vs29). The command of Esther established these customs for Purim, and it was written in the book of the royal archives.” Esther 9:29,32 AMP
A prophetic interpretation of this passage [Esther 8:11-12] the name Esther in Hebrew means ‘star’, the number 8 represents ‘new beginnings’, the number 11 represents ‘a point in time which is nearly too late, last minute’, the number 12 represents ‘governing’ and being ‘sent’. And in [Esther 9:29,32] the number 9 represents ‘birthing’, the number 29 pertaining to Jesus’ lineage is a man called Salmon, who was the father of Boaz who married Ruth (application: father of redemption, restoration, and new beginnings) he is the great-great grandfather of King David, and Salmon also means ‘garment’ or ‘mantle’. Also in the number 29 on the Hebrew calendar five out of twelve months always have 29 days in them, and the month of Adar in which Purim is celebrated is one of the five. The number 32 pertaining to Jesus’ lineage is Jesse the father of King David (application: father of Kings is on the scene, Father of the Beloved One), Jesse also means ‘husband’ or ‘man’.
In summary, the Lord is calling His sons and daughters to the forefront, He has extended His favor toward you, and given you the seal of His signet ring. The words of deliverance you decree according to His heart are sealed with all authority and final rule. This is the season of the rising of the new kings, the pure ones who will defend the peoples on behalf of the lineage of the King; they know what belongs to Him and understand the salvation of the people are His inheritance, ‘the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof’. In our frame of time it appears that it is nearly too late but the Lord would say His glory has risen upon you for such a time as this. Shine brightly for He is sending you forth in His Name to make crooked paths straight, to tear down and rebuild, to remove obstacles and disciple nations in preparation for the return of the King. Wrap yourself in the mantle of humility, be clothed in the garments of Righteousness, take dominion and rule with authority. The birthing of the new beginning and redemption is in the decree, Queen Esther wrote with full power and authority to confirm the King’s new decree (Esther 9:29). The establishing of the restoration of all things is our command, given by the authority of our Husband under the governing leadership of the Father. (Esther 9:32).
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. The multitude of camels shall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord.” Isaiah 60:1-6 NKJV
Additionally, this is the prophetic word I released on The Birthing Of The New Wine in Fire, Power, and Love in 2020 (from a more extensive prophetic word “wait now, I’m coming”), which is to come during Purim season / month of Adar. On the Hebrew calendar 2022 Purim falls in the month of Adar, and celebrated on March 16th and 17th. Adar means strength and is known as the most joyous month of the year, and is also a time of visitation from the Father which I write about in this word : https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2021/02/25/the-birthing-of-the-new-wine/
“THE LORD IS RELEASING KEYS TO UNLOCK THAT WHICH WAS ONCE HIDDEN, HE IS SHARING SECRETS AND GIVING SOLUTIONS” ~ from prophetic word I released March 19, 2020 “THE HOUR OF MYSTERIES REVEALED”.
I’ve had several dreams recently about Jesus coming to rule and other dreams that confirm the hour of this word; earthly Kings at war and the games are just beginning. We are in a time of the changing of the guards. Exposure, Revelation, Revealing, Keys, etc. All of which I had written about in this word, and though it has been ‘revealing itself’ over the last two years, today I believe as Scripture writes in Isaiah 22:22 there’s another defining moment in TIME, in history on this very date 2.22.22. The Lord is marking this day with His Word, “I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.” Isaiah 22:22 NLT
This Is A Time For Kingdom Advancement
If you follow prophecy, wisdom will lead you to wheels and more wheels within the wheel if you have eyes to see. With our consumption driven culture, we often overlook what the Lord has already said, and CONTINUES to say.
May this word bless you!
THE HOUR OF MYSTERIES REVEALED March 19, 2020 Amy Sutherland
This morning, March 19, 2020, as I felt the pull to go into the Word of God I opened my Bible and thought I was going to one book and when I looked down I was in another (Daniel) that I had not turned to – though immediately, “The secret is revealed to Daniel” was highlighted to me. I could feel the Spirit of The Lord hovering here, and my eyes went to Daniel 2:19 “Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night and Daniel blessed the God of Heaven.”
After reading more of the surrounding scriptures in Daniel chapter two, I went to the woods to pray and ask the Lord what He was wanting to say as I could sense there was more, there was a certain and unusual weight on these Words today. After making stops here and there to take notice of a mix of new buds on trees and small emerging flowers along with muddy terrain and areas of stagnant waters, when my walk was almost over, very clearly I heard the Spirit of Lord say, “These things will spring forth this spring”. I then googled when the first day of spring was thinking it was some time away, and consequently very surprised to see that is was in fact TODAY, and according to the farmer’s almanac is earlier than it has been in over a century! It was then I knew this was a “now” word, and there is a springing forth and quickening of that which has been hidden and dormant. “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him” Daniel 2:22
As I continued to press into the Lord’s heart over this and wait upon Him I had a vision. And in the vision I saw roots exposed upside down, I was looking closely at the root system and the vision began to pan out and I saw giant trees coming up from the earth but they were upside down with root systems exposed suspended in space. The trees were so large that the root systems could connect to the roots systems of other trees in other countries. Then the vision panned in closer again in an “extreme close up” and I saw (what looked like phone, usb, etc) wires twined in the roots connecting to other nations. Then I began to pan out again and saw the whole earth orbiting in space with trees all around the globe upside down.
As I began to research the trees and their root systems, I came across this commentary. It is as if creation, science and God are prophesying back to us. “Globally, trees are often recognized as the ‘lungs of the world’ because they exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with the atmosphere. However, this is an understatement. If we think in these terms, trees are also the kidneys of the world as they regulate the flow and use of water by intercepting rain and releasing it slowly to the ground where it can either run off into rivers, or enter the groundwater. Plants can then absorb it for use in photosynthesis. This absorbed water is then transpired back to the atmosphere and blown on the wind until it falls as rain somewhere else. Finally, they are like the heart of the world, as they drive the ecosystems that make the world healthy and function properly.” Quoted from commentary by Roger Leakey (Vice Chairman, International Tree Foundation). I believe this is a divine hour where the Lord is flipping upside down and turning inside out to expose compromised ‘systems’ in the heart of the world. In our created bodies, the lungs protect the heart, and the kidneys help pass waste and help filter the blood before sending it back to the heart. As roots of trees mimic the lungs in actual function and appearance this is divine exposure to ultimately protect the heart of His created. There has been a “running off’ of tainted waters, but the Lord is exposing so the cleansing may begin.
Isaiah 42:8,9 “I am the Lord, that is My Name; My glory I will not give to another, nor my praise to carved idols. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”
Daniel – Hebrew “God is my judge” (by definition: pronounce sentence [for or against] to vindicate or punish, to govern, contend, defend, execute judgment – needs, plead, reason, rule); “strength”
THE BLESSING OF THE LORD IS IN THE YIELDING – HE IS COMING AS JUDGE BUT OFFERING STRENGTH
This is a time in history when the pendulum is swinging publicly, God is judging for or against, removing and establishing kings. He is appointing in this hour for His purpose. This is not a time to resist, but to yield. When we yield to who or what The Lord is for or against, we will be under rooted in strength. In Hebrew, “Strength” is the under meaning of Daniel, “God is my judge”. Symbolically, just as I found myself in the book of Daniel and I did not resist reading the word although it is not what I was going to choose but it was where I was led, America and the Nations will find themselves searching out a different chapter in their lives, they will be interrupted by God their Judge, and if they yield to the change Elohay Mauzi – God Of My Strength will be their undergirding.
He removes kings and establishes kings. Daniel answered, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. “It is He who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise And [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding! “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him. “I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us [the solution to] the king’s matter.” Daniel 2:20,23
THE LORD IS RELEASING KEYS TO UNLOCK THAT WHICH WAS ONCE HIDDEN, HE IS SHARING SECRETS AND GIVING SOLUTIONS
The Lord is sharing these secrets and give solutions with whom He can trust. The consecrated. The Beloved. (Daniel 1: 8-20) Those who have not been heard in the past will now have voice. Those long hidden will now be seen. Many false prophets have been established as kings, but the Lord is making way for the voices of the Pure. I heard in the Spirit, “Misfits you haven’t missed it, God is about to make you His modern mystic”. Like in the vision where the wires were twined in roots, as this cleansing is taking place man made wiring (voice, communication) will be detangled and make way for proclamation of the pure voice of the Lord to be heard throughout the earth. You haven’t missed it, the wait was divine orchestration; as some kings fall, now the priests of the Lord will rise to reign. There will be more unity in the five fold than ever before, because now is the time the Spirit of the Lord will pour out His Spirit on all flesh.
‘And it shall be in the last days,’ says God, ‘That I will pour out My Spirit upon all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see [divinely prompted] visions, And your old men shall dream [divinely prompted] dreams; Even on My bond-servants, both men and women, I will in those days pour out My Spirit And they shall prophesy. ‘And I will bring about wonders in the sky above And signs (attesting miracles) on the earth below, Blood and fire and smoking vapor. ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness And the moon into blood, Before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes. ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord Jesus] shall be saved (rescued spiritually).’ Acts 2:17-21 (Joel 2:28-32).
THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU AUTHORITY OVER THOSE WHO OPPRESSED YOU
“The king answered Daniel and said, “Most certainly your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, since you have been able to reveal this mystery!” Then the king promoted Daniel [to an exalted position] and gave him many great gifts, and he made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and chief governor over all the wise men of Babylon.” Daniel 2:47,48
Babylon in Hebrew translates “confusion”. The rulers of this air communicate with confusion (Ephesians 6:12), and thereby the earthly kings rule underneath it. Through this divine exposure there will be a shift, and those who once opposed you will seek you for clarity, those who once suppressed you will seek you for wisdom, those who once despised you will favor you.
Finally, It is not coincidental that we recently celebrated Purim, and it is not coincidental that Passover is upon us, as “It is He who changes the times and seasons.” Daniel 2:21 Let us not forget that Esther found favor with the King, was promoted to Queen and saved an entire race. Let us not forget Daniel was shown secrets from the Lord and was able to interpret the Kings dream thereby saving his own life and his brothers, and later survived the fiery furnace and the lions den. Let us not forget Jesus the sacrificial Lamb has come and resurrected.
Exodus 13:14 “And it shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What does this mean?’ you shall say to him, ‘With a strong and powerful hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of bondage and slavery.”
Esther 9:1 “Now in the twelfth month on the thirteenth day when the king’s command and edict were about to be executed, on the very day when the enemies of the Jews had hoped to gain power over them and slaughter them, it happened the other way around so that the Jews themselves gained power over those who hated them.”
The Lord is looking to you son and daughter, He has given you His authority and I hear His voice saying, would you rise up Esther? Would you rise up Daniel? Would you rise up Deborah? Would you rise up Joseph? Would you rise up Rahab? Would you rise up John? Would you rise up Mary? It is time to rise up in the spirit of Elijah and testify to the Spirit of Jesus. Would you prepare the way?
Today is 2.2.22, equaling the sum total 8, and the number eight is symbolic of New Beginnings, Restoration and Redemption. And in a full interpretation we have 5 (2’s) counting the unabbreviated￼ year 2022, with a sum total of 10. Grace for the testing, and now a double portion recompense.
After having several very recent dreams on the above topics, I believe today is a culmination point with a message that says in summary these dreams are marking a time and season of new beginnings, even this very day.
Early this morning I had a dream I was helping a young woman I know get dressed and ready on her wedding day. Though she is not in a relationship currently, in the dream it was time and I was there to guide and assist her. The meaning of the her name is “white, fair, blessed ring”. This is a time of blessing to enter into new covenant with the Lord, and also with those who are your new destiny alignments. The point of view in the dream zoomed to her heels where a thick sliver line had been drawn right above the last bend line in the back of the heel near the achilles. I then watched her put her shoes on. This silver line connected to the shoes almost appearing like a drawn on “sling back” attachment to the shoe. There are multiple references in the Bible for the heel being used to describe the most vulnerable area of attack. I believe the Lord is saying He has placed His silver band of redemption over the most vulnerable areas His Bride has been attacked. The Father has drawn the line against the enemies hand, and the Lord will cause what the enemy used to harm you as a “sling back” to quickly propel you forward. Lastly in the dream my attention was checking over the Bride’s makeup. She chose red lip stick, and light browns for eye color. In show business we call this “last looks” right before the cameras start rolling. It is time the Bride of Christ arise for such a time as this; time her speech is marked with boldness, carried by passionate devotion for her Bridegroom King. Her eyes are adorned in a beauty named humility, it is a protective covering for the gates that guard purity of heart.
The Lord has prepared His fair ones, those with purity in heart, action, and speech. Arise now and walk into your new beginning! “The fig tree puts forth and ripens her green figs, and the vines are in blossom and give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” Song of Solomon 2:13 AMPC
“And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12 ESV
“So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.” Romans 8:28 TPT
Where are we going? We are returning to the heights from which we have fallen, reattaching to the heart of our Beloved. Fitting that the Holy Spirit would choose John the Beloved and Revelator to write to the Church of Ephesus this message from God the Father, delivered to him by an Angel, ““To the angel (divine messenger) of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of the One who holds [firmly] the seven stars [which are the angels or messengers of the seven churches] in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands (the seven churches): ‘I know your deeds and your toil, and your patient endurance, and that you cannot tolerate those who are evil, and have tested and critically appraised those who call themselves apostles (special messengers, personally chosen representatives, of Christ), and [in fact] are not, and have found them to be liars and impostors; and [I know that] you [who believe] are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and that you have not grown weary [of being faithful to the truth]. But I have this [charge] against you, that you have left your first love [you have lost the depth of love that you first had for Me]. So remember the heights from which you have fallen, and repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, your sinful behavior—seek God’s will] and do the works you did at first [when you first knew Me]; otherwise, I will visit you and remove your lampstand (the church, its impact) from its place—unless you repent. Yet you have this [to your credit], that you hate the works and corrupt teachings of the Nicolaitans [that mislead and delude the people], which I also hate. He who has an ear, let him hear and heed what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God], I will grant [the privilege] to eat [the fruit] from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God.’” Revelation 2:1-7 AMP
Ephesus is a Greek word that can be translated as “desirable” or “darling” and one that a Greek bridegroom would use for a girl he desired to marry (footnotes TPT). Symbolically, the Church continues to be called higher, wooed by the Holy Spirit to arise and meet with her Beloved Bridegroom King. I believe the global Church is moving from “knowing” to “experiencing” in this next season. Recently while studying scripture, asking the Lord for a plumbline for my own experiences and inquiring about this next year, I heard in the Spirit “knowledge without experience is void of intimacy” (December 17, 2021). Experiencing what we know through encounter will set ablaze our hearts for this One who desires to marry us.
The call of the Bridegroom is beckoning each one of our hearts, “come up here”. When we repent – turn from facing idols and chasing foxes and all that hinders us from His fiery love we are restored to the highest heights that are reserved for devoted lovers of His presence. A place intended for all, but a climb few are willing to trek. Repent simply means turn and come back up to the pent house, be restored to the higher way of thinking and living. In both realms, spirit or natural a penthouse or mountain top will provide the best views, the most privacy, and the least amount of noise or distraction. In the natural penthouses are financially the most costly to own or rent. They are defined as an apartment or dwelling situated on the roof of a building, or top floor. Likewise, spiritually dwelling here is costly as well, as the Psalmist writes, ““Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah” Psalms 24:3-6 NKJV.
A life of yieldedness is costly, though as I often encourage it is in the yielding that we yield.PRODUCE defined is to give birth or rise to : YIELD ; to oversee the making of ; to cause to have existence or to happen: BRING ABOUT ; to give being, form, or shape to: MAKE ; the amount produced : YIELD ; agricultural products and especially fresh fruits and vegetables as distinguished from grain and other staple crops. You can only produce good and acceptable fruit from the seed of intimacy. The seed of intimacy is reserved for the devoted lovers, those who experience Who they know. Those who Know the Beloved by experience are the betrothed, and some are already married sons and daughters who have been overshadowed by the Almighty – these chosen ones are the continual dwellers of His presence and the keepers of covenant.
The spark must first be restored, and then we will experience the flames of first love – after “doing the works we did when we first knew Him”. November 16, 2021 in a prophetic dream the Lord showed me a new apostolic marriage movement marked by creative miracles, fire and glory. The dream began with myself wrapped in a single white sheet and walking over to a sleeping mat also with a white fitted and single sheet and pillow with case that was in the middle of the “family room”. I knew this is where I was going to sleep for one or more nights until this brief assignment was over. I asked the owner of the home who is also a respected and well-known Apostle in our current day if I could ask her a question. We then left her vacation home and she took me to a church that didn’t necessarily resemble church from the exterior and we entered from the outside from a lower level which was the foundation of the Church. People in attendance, (made up of many couples and some singles too) started to dance in a train line and made their way over to where I was sitting on the opposite side in the front of the church. After I was in the back in a slightly separate room with an open doorway to the sanctuary with several others waiting to go out and fully be part of this train movement (trains in the prophetic are symbolic of the apostolic). While we were waiting I was praying for couples and seeing creative miracles, things non-existent with the human eye become visible in the natural as I decreed and “drew in the air” with my left hand. The living substance that was released from my left hand was glowing, fiery, living and sparkly. Left handed in this instance represents the creative miracles as the right hemisphere of one’s brain coordinates the left side of the body, and performs tasks that have do with creativity and the arts. Fire and glory were also being released for this new end-time movement. The Lord is bringing us back to our foundations to purify us for the sanctified global Church rising. “You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:20 AMPC.
It is not a coincidence that marriage and family will lead the end time revival movement with fire and glory. Why wouldn’t marriage lead when that is what Christ is returning for? Furthermore, Christ is returning for a pure and spotless Bride, one who has cleansed herself from the stains and sin of this world, therefore fire is necessary for continual purification at the foundation and also denotes passionate lovers who carry plenty of oil who burn brightly for their Bridegroom King. As the Deliverer-Prophet Moses boldly asked, “show me your glory” while atop the mountain, so is glory symbolic of intimate face to face encounter and a commitment to go only where the Lord would lead (Exodus 33). These presence people will be marked by fire around them and glory in their midst. “For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’ ” Zechariah 2:5 NKJV. Before this movement can fully launch I believe the Lord is restoring the spark individually within hearts; between themselves and the Lord and secondly within marital relationships. Healing not yet imagined will transpire between men and women and will be so freeing that the true hearts “longing for the Beloved” will be tangibly and authentically expressed through purity in unity within marriage and with God.
Near the end of this dream I offered to pray for a woman sitting on the floor who happened to be wearing brown boots. She kept insisting “tomorrow”, though I knew in the dream it had to be then. The invitation for this radical impartation and transformation was a “now moment”, tomorrow would be too late. And sadly, she declined. Tomorrow may not come for some, and it is a critical hour to stay in step and heed the Spirit’s call. Respond and call back to the sound of His wooing voice. The brown boots represent walking in humility, but unfortunately they were not utilized. It is humility to allow the Spirit to lift you, we must not wait to be strong enough “get up on our own”. The Lord desires to strengthen you, for it is not by works but by grace you have been saved. “Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.” Jeremiah 33:3.
“Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a portal open into the heavenly realm, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.” Revelation 4:1 TPT
Can you hear the voice of your Bridegroom King calling? ‘My Darling, My desired one – the one I long to marry and who My soul loves – come now and change your mind, you have fallen from the heights and forgotten the depths of my unfailing love. Come up here my fair one, great and mighty things I have yet to show you. Unity with Me allows you to experience My love where you are wholly complete, secure, and transformed. You’ve been conditioning for the climb, will you come now and be with Me’?
“The one I love calls to me: Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one.” Song of Songs 2:10 TPT
